Operatic Wine Tasting

Join us for an Operatic Wine Tasting … a fundraiser benefitting the MetOpera National Council Eastern Region. Premium wines paired with your favorite arias performed by National Council Alumni

Our expert sommelier will explore the links between each aria/opera and wine as it relates to the piece being performed. Six different types of wine will be served. Stay tuned to learn more about the singers and the wines to be featured at our first ever Operatic Wine tasting.

In addition to the wine, light finger foods will be served.
